Sydney: Nov 1, 2013
The cricketers are beginning their moustache-growing from November 1 to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Lehmann said he had no hesitation in offering his support for Movember, one of Cricket Australia‘s (CA’s) two official charity partners.
“Movember has helped change the way we see men’s health and with my grandfather battling prostate cancer, it’s a cause I’ll always be a huge supporter of,” Lehmann said in a CA statement on Friday.
“It’s great to have Wade, Warner, Starc and Johnson on board as well and I think things will get pretty competitive but hopefully I’ll have the boys covered when it comes to the end of the month.”
Last year the Australian cricket community raised more than Aus $112,000 (US $106,000) for the cause, taking cricket’s contribution to more than Aus $300,000 since 2008.
